In order to cope with the digital transformation in general, but also to cope with the changing demands on the SAP basis and its scope of responsibility, it is necessary to revise existing roles and define and establish new roles. These include the roles of the technology architect, new features of the Subject Matter Expert (SME), and the role of the Expert Team Lead in leading a group of experts. Further information can be found in chapter 7.1 and 9.3 of the Master's thesis.
A Conflict Resolution Transport (CRT) is used only for add-ons, such as IS-IS or IS-OIL. It is used to eliminate conflicts that may arise between the different support packages and an add-on. Note that a CRT that applies to an add-on release also resolves all conflicts with previous releases of that add-on. In addition, a CRT may include other corrections for the corresponding add-on. A CRT can therefore always be a special add-on support package. Settings for SPAM With Additional Settings, you can access a dialogue box where you can specify general settings for the SAP Patch Manager (SPAM). These settings affect the behaviour of downloading and loading support packages of the different types equally. SPAM updates are an exception; certain settings are specified for these. You can toggle the following properties on and off: Transmission Monitor If you enable the Transmission Monitor, you can monitor the download of the support packages from the SAPNet - R/3 frontend with a graphical monitor. Otherwise, you will only get a progress bar. Scenario Choosing the scenario determines which actions should be performed while the Support Packages are being played in. The default scenario is used to fully deploy support packages; All steps are performed. The test scenario allows you to determine whether a modification match is required or whether conflicts occur that should be resolved before the support packages are loaded. The test scenario does not import data and objects into your SAP system. There is no test scenario for SPAM updates. The choice is ignored when a SPAM update is introduced. Rebuild data files You can specify whether the data files from the EPS packages will be reunzipped each time you try to play. In principle, this is the case.
The most important SAP Basis transactions
In order for Fiori applications to be displayed according to the calling users, appropriate Fiori permissions must be maintained in the PFCG. There are several points to consider. This article discusses the permissions required to launch a Fiori application. In addition, a short explanation is given, how the displayed tiles can be configured in the Fiori launchpad via reels. To run Fiori applications from the launchpad and the permission queries defined in the OData services, the corresponding Fiori permission objects must also be maintained in the PFCG. Here the start permissions for the application's OData service in the backend system as well as permission objects are relevant for the business logic of the OData services used in the application. In general, it is important to know that if Fiori is implemented correctly, permissions must be maintained in the front-end server (call Launchpad, start the tile, etc.) as well as permissions in the back-end server (call the OData services from the backend). This article explains this in more detail.
